Covering the groundwork of organic chemistry, this introductory text shows the interrelation between organic chemistry and the biological and health sciences in a way that is clear, concise and easily understood by students.
Tree Or Three?
Author: Ann Baker
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This fully-revised edition of the classic elementary pronunciation course is now accompanied by 3 Audio CDs and is suitable for both self-study and classroom use. This is a revised and updated edition of the classic pronunciation title, 'Tree or Three?'. This new edition retains many of the features that make the original edition so popular. In particular, the overall simplicity of the text and straightforward syllabus with an emphasis on minimal pairs, that makes the subject of pronunciation so accessible has been retained. Although the artwork remains simple, this new edition is in full colour to make the material more user-friendly. Still ideal for classroom use, the new edition is also more suitable for learners working on their own (at home or in self-access centres), as clearer rubrics for exercises have been included together with better overall navigation and a clear answer key.

Epoxy resins are polymers which are extensively used as coating materials due to their outstanding mechanical properties and good handling characteristics. A disadvantage results from their high cross-link density: they are brittle and have very low resistance to crack growth and propagation. This necessitates the toughening of the epoxy matrix without impairing its good thermomechanical properties. The final properties of the polymer depend on their structure. The book focuses on the microstructural aspects in the modification of epoxy resins with low molecular weight liquid rubbers, one of the prime toughening agents commonly employed. The book follows thoroughly the reactions of elastomer-modified epoxy resins from their liquid stage to the network formation. It gives an in-depth view into the cure reaction, phase separation and the simultaneous development of the morphology. Chapters on ageing, failure analysis and life cycle analysis round out the book.
Max og Laura holder sommerferie i den lille landsby Stonecross, der ligger tæt på Stonehenge. Et mystisk symbol, underlige mennesker og en gammel bog fuld af koder og hemmeligheder er blot nogen af ingredienserne i denne historie.
Business history needs a shake-up, Philip Scranton and Patrick Fridenson argue, as many businesses go global and cultural contexts become critical. Reimagining Business History prods practitioners to take new approaches to entrepreneurial intentions, company scale, corporate strategies, local infrastructure, employee well-being, use of resources, and long-term environmental consequences. During the past half century, the history of American business became an unusually active and rewarding field of scholarship, partly because of the primacy of postwar American capital, at home and abroad, and the rise of a consumer culture but also because of the theoretical originality of Alfred D. Chandler. In a field long given over to banal company histories and biographies of tycoons, Chandler took the subject seriously enough to ask about the large patterns and causes of corporate success. Chandler and his students found the richest material for theorizing about the course of business history in large companies and their institutional structures and cultures. Meantime, Scranton and others found smaller firms, those specializing in batch work as opposed to mass-produced goods, far closer to the norm and more telling. Scranton and Fridenson believe that the time has come for a sweeping rethinking of the field, its materials, and the kinds of questions its practitioners should be asking. How can this field develop in an age of global markets, growing information technology, and diminishing resources? A transnational collaboration between two senior scholars, Reimagining Business History offers direction in forty-four short, pithy essays. -- Paul Duguid, University of California, Berkeley

Author: Simon Anholt
Ever since Simon Anholt coined the phrase 'Nation Branding, there has been more and more interest in the idea that countries, cities and regions can build their brand images. This authoritative book considers how commercial brand management can really be applied to places and shows how places can build and sustain their competitive identity.
